Emotated: Good 4 million copied mail addresses at Prufdienf HAVE I Been Pwned

Troy hunt, operator of the prufdungs "have i bee pwned" (hibp) for compromised access data, has informed that the fbi total 4.324.770 e-mail addresses from all over the world have transferred to him. These are the investigators in the course of the takedown of the trojan emotated in the hands. The disclosure to hibp has decided on the fbi based on how to transfer the service to inform the service a good way to inform individuals and companies about the data theft by emotated.

At hibp you can search a huge database with more than 11 billion-tired accounts after a mail address. Usually this can be used to enter the relevant address directly on the homepage of havetenpwned.Com to do. In this particular case, troy hunt has the data though "sensitive breach" marked, so that only the owners of the e-mail addresses themselves can examine whether they are affected. This works over the menu item "notify me" respectively. About the counterpart "domain search" for domain owners. In the case of a hit, a direct notification is made to the specified e-mail address.

An similar prufservice also offers the website of the dutch police: after entering the e-mail address, you will receive a notification here, if necessary, a notification. The database comprises according to the description after all 3.6 million e-mail addresses.

Despite emotated finish: necessarily password

In a blog entry for data intake by the fbi to hibp, hunt completes that the e-mail addresses discovered in emotets infrastructure fall into two categories: they have been saved to one to use them for spam shipping and thus redesigned from emotated. On the other hand, it is web access data that copied emotates from browsers to log in to themselves.

In both cases, therefore, the respective awarded password was allowed to be considered compromised. Accordingly, hunt affected in coordination with the fbi to change the passwords immediately. The same applies to any passwords and security ies for accounts stored in compromised e-mail mailboxes or in the browser. In addition, it is important to pay attention to keeping the locally used av security software up to date.

Administrators potentially affected networks has hunt to the yara rules published by bka for emotated distance. However, this step was allowed to use now, however, because after the confiscation of the emotated servers, this was updated to the infected systems that disabled the malfunction and shifted to a quartane folder for evidence protection:

At least the other two advice should, however, should continue to be followed by both admins and normal end users. Because it was typically emotated further malicious software in the luggage. And since this malware continues to be active and could also be served at emotets data collection, the argumentation is: "why should i change my passwords? Emotated is history?" a dangerous wrong.
